This is the one post I thought I would never have to do in a long time....:cry: My car has been wrecked :cry: I was driving down the highway at about 70mph when I was taking a turn my rear wheel kinda lifted up, I tried to sway back to straighten the car, but when I did, that's when I hit the rural road. When I tried to straighten out the car, that is when I rolled over twice on the rural road, I am ok, but the car is another story. It sucks seen all that work that a lot of my friends and myself put into that car all go away, but it's just one of those things in life that happens. :cry:

WOW! :eek: That sure does suck. You're very lucky to have walked away. I am assuming you were wearing your seatbelt.
The damage looks pretty minor for having rolled twice though. The roof structure of the IS must be pretty rigid.

Man, I am so sorry to hear that. I am glad that you are ok and hopefully things work out well with the insurance. The good thing I guess is that you can change anything on your car that would have done differently.

I'm no insurance adjuster, but that wreck is a total if I've ever seen one.
As we say around here, "Wrecked 'um (rectum)? Hell, damn near killed 'um!".
If you find out yours was a control arm too, please advise us all of the issue so we can inspect our cars for the same problem. I'll have to go back and look at your pics, but if your suspension was slammed there might have been some suspension geometry or stress loading issues Good luck with the claim.

Same thing happened to me. I was pretty confident taking the turn at the speed I was going. Approaching the turn I figure I'd better chill on the speed. Slightly applied the brakes a little after I entered the turn. Next thing I know my rear swung out.
